Mon, Nov 29: Join us for Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) Outreach Work Party!

Dan Wald, who is both a NOW NY State Young Feminist Task Force member, and on the board of SAFER, sent out the following request for an upcoming feminist event.  We jumped at the opportunity to help SAFER, not only because of Dan's involvment, but also due to the important work SAFER does for sexual-assault survivors across the nation.  SAFER helped me and another student propose and create the sexual-assault policy for about half-a-million students at City University of NY.  Without SAFER, the process would have taken much longer, and might not have had much student input.  Want to make a tangible impact against sexual assault while meeting energized and progressive activists?  Join the NOW NY State Young Feminist Task Force and SAFER feminists for a outreach work party.  RSVP to

Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) is in the midst of a big push to the Campus Accountability Project and we NEED YOU to help us get the word out!

We’re looking for volunteers to join us for a one night work party! Meet the faces behind SAFER and help us gather contact information of schools missing from our national anti-violence initiative, the Campus Accountability Project.

Food! Music! Excellent Company!

Please bring a laptop with wi-fi capacity and an ID to get into the building. If you don’t have access to a computer and would like to join us, please send us a message and we will arrange something!

About the Campus Accountability Project

The Campus Accountability Project invites college students to become advocates by researching their schools’ sexual assault policies and find out what their schools are doing to prevent and respond to sexual assault. Students are encouraged to research their school’s policies and programs and submit their findings on our National V-Day/SAFER Campus Accountability Project Database. Our policy review form guides students through specific questions about what their school does and does not offer according to the current policy on the books. Students can begin the process and then save their work and return if needed. A complete policy analysis takes around two hours. Only students can submit to CAP. All CAP submissions are fact-checked by SAFER staff and then published on a public, search-able database which serves as a research tool for activists seeking to make change on their campus.
